    I have been working at WebMD Health

    Pros

    People are great
    A lot of employee perks
    Great cake days

    Cons

    Too many cliques and advancement falls in line with who you're friends with
    Needs process improvement. They are still operating like they are a start-up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid promoting people purely based on cliques and who you like. While personality is a big thing, there were qualified, well-skilled, personable, professional people who left because they weren't given the opportunity...even when they asked for an opportunity to prove themselves and help the company. WebMD will fail based on this model.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    More changes needed, current status not sustainable

    I worked at WebMD Health

    Pros

    On the right track, made some right decisions and has good intentions

    Cons

    More needs to be done for middle and upper middle management. C-level executives/SVPs are indeed trying to get company on track and groth path, but the next level still works on nepotism and political gains rather than objectives. Unfortunatelyt thye were the decision makers for the last actionable step towards growth path, so they were not impacted at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out ways to identify and weed out nepotism.
